For last few years I been using promotional Tracfone HSN phone deals to add one year service and 1500 min/text/data to my account as that was cheapest way to go. Especially when HSN offer $49 phones with such promotional service.

1200 Min/Text/Data with one year service would cost $99 from retailers and Tracfone web site.

But with new $10 card (500 minutes/no service days) and $15 card (500 M/T/D with 30 service days), It seem not to be worth going HSN route to harvest their promotional service.

One can by three $15 cars for total of $45, and that is still $15 cheaper than current lowest HSN’s phone (LG Rebel 4 $59) with 1500 promotional minutes and data.

So unless one need new phone, or added service days, Tracfone HSN phone deals don’t seem so tempting anymore.
